Cuisine: American, Mexican
Keyword: Mexican Cheese Dip, Queso Blanco, White Cheese Dip
Servings: 30fluid ounces
1 1/4(1.25) lb block White American Cheese (Land O'Lakes brand preferred), cut into 1-inch cubes
1/4cupdiced green chiles, from a can
2pickled jalapenos, chopped
1ouncepickled jalapeno juice
pinch of cumin(optional)
Combine the cheese cubes, milk and water into a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, stopping to stir after every minute. The mixture might seem watery during the first few stirs, but should come together as a nice runny dip after all the cheese is melted. Remove from the microwave and stir in the rest of the ingredients.
Serve immediately as a dip with tortilla chips or as a sauce over your favorite Mexican dish. If using for a party dip, transfer to a small Crock Pot on the warm setting.
Crock Pot Method:
Combine all ingredients in a small Crock Pot. Set on low for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Once melted, reduce setting to warm.
Store any leftover cheese dip in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until creamy and hot.
White American cheese is found at most deli counters in your local grocery store. Land o' Lakes is my preferred brand, however, I have had great results with Boar's Head, too.
If after 5 minutes in the microwave your cheese is not all melted, give it an additional 30 seconds and stir again. Repeat until melted. You may also use a wire whisk if clumps remain.
